Cadillac can be seen as one of the most iconic and enduring auto brands of the last 100 years.
Founded in 1902 by Henry Leland, it only took six or so years before Cadillac:
- Brought forward the idea of interchangeable car parts
- Laid the foundation for modern mass production of automobiles
Innovations such as these led to Cadillac adopting the slogan “Standard of the World”—and the innovation didn’t stop there. In 1910, Cadillac was the first company to offer a car that had a fully enclosed passenger cabin.
Between 1910 and 1920, Cadillac:
- Released the first electronic self-starter, ignition, lighting model
- Won the Dewar trophy for the second time
- Introduced the V8 engine that became synonymous with the Cadillac brand
